The information has been spotted over at the NeoGAF forums, and from there, someone posted a translated post from German magazine 'GameStar'. The message gives some details, that it's currently 30-percent through development, 2013 release, Maxis is developing with EA publishing, and then we have:

PROS:

New graphics engine and road round.
